Keeping children in their culture matters.
Children in foster care come from all backgrounds—most share a background of abuse or neglect. They can be newborns, toddlers, or teenagers. They come from every part of the state and every race, religion, and socio-economic group. In too many instances, their parents have unresolved substance abuse issues.
In Utah, we urgently need foster families to care for diverse children, siblings, and teens.
How & Why
Adopt thru Foster Care
There are two ways to adopt children from foster care: the first is foster-to-adopt; the second is adopt a waiting child. Regardless of the path you take, adopting thru foster care is an attractive option for those seeking to grow their families:
